fewer than half of those countries have actually taken part in it guess who is picking up most of the tab, again? the national security correspondent jennifer griffin at the pentagon. not very diplomatic talk from secretary gates, jen. >> he said publicly what he has been saying privately about nato for four years that nato may be a cold war relic that the u.s. can no longer afford. >> furthermore, the mightiest military alliance in history is only 11 weeks into an operation against a poorly armed regime and a sparsely populated country. yet, many allies are beginning to run short of munitions requiring the u.s., once more, to make up the difference. >> all 28 nato members voted for the libya mission but only a third are participating in strike missions. and a nato air base, we have found out, set up to handle 300 air strikes a day, shep, is struggling to handle half that. >> shepard: as for the cost of all of this, not the human cost but the monetary cost, one more time they underestimated the
cost of a not war. >> well u the administration has said and said recently that it would cost $750 million through the end of september. that's what they budgeted for. now, we're told it will be at least $100 million for u.s. taxpayers to pay more than that. >> if you told the american taxpayers, as i just did, that they are bearing 75% of the financial burden of the alliance, this is going to raise eyebrows. >> well, three quarters of the cost of nato operations shouldered by one country, the united states, even though it was britain, france, italy that wanted the u.s. to go into this libyan mission and gates, as you know, shep, was he a posed to it but now the u.s. is baying for it. >> shepard: jennifer griffin live at the pentagon. jennifer, thank you. a wildfire alert and it keeps growing. the wire crews in arizona finally are making headway in the battle second largest forest
fire in arizona state history. the so-called wallow fire in eastern arizona has scorched more than 600 square miles. in just a little more than a week it has burned dozens of buildings, about 30 homes and forced the evacuation of thousands of people. and now we're told that fire is threatening power lines, which supply electricity to places as far as away as el paso, texas. fortunately, the high winds that have been fueling this fire have died down today. crews are back in the skies dropping water and flame retardant chemicals on the grounds they are stepping up efforts to build containment lines. we're told it's 5% contained. not a lot but better. when folks will be able to return to their home is still a big question mark. >> i cannot speck speculate as to when we will let people back. in can i tell you we will not let people back in until it's absolutely safe and we're absolutely sure they will not have to evacuate again. >> shepard: that's important because crews say the high winds could pick up again tomorrow. casey stegall live in springerville, arizona.
tell us about what the brave firefighters are facing now. >> shepard, a number of challenges aside from the shear size. the terrain is very rugged and remote. the fire is burning all around and in the apache national forest and the white mountains, so it is very difficult to move that heavy equipment in, to dig the containment lines. the thick smoke also risky for aircraft making those crucial water drops. tonight, more than 5,000 structures still remain in this fire's path, shep. >> shepard: any injuries out there or is everything okay? >> not really. and that is part of the miraculous news here, especially when you look at the scope of things. this fire has done damage larger than the city of los angeles and only three minor injuries reported. more than 3,000 firefighters are on the groundworking here. the vast majority of the 7,000 residents heeding the evacuation orders and moving to safety,
shepard. >> shepard: casey stegall at the fire. thank you. what a day of gruesome testimony and tears flowing in the trial of casey anthony, the central florida accused murderer. the trial picked up right where it left off yesterday when casey anthony left the courtroom complaining of being sick and at some point today it looks as if casey might have become sick again as investigators talked about the condition of the skull of caylee anthony. the 2-year-old daughter of casey claims drowned in the family swimming pool. prosecutors say died at the hands of her own mother. phil keating is at the courthouse once again for us tonight. you know, today, phil, ended with yet another motion tore dismissal or mistrial, i guess, frankly. >> yeah, absolutely. they are calling yet for another mistrial because of what happened upstairs this afternoon the jury watching a 5 minute video presentation which began with a still photo of then alive caylee anthony smiling at the camera but then it mores through graphic animation and results in nothing more more than crime
scene photograph of her skull found out in the woods with a piece of duct tape super imposed over the nose and mouth. prosecutors say that was all that was needed to suffocate and kill little caylee anthony. during this, casey scowling at the defense table. scowling at the tv monitors, shaking her head, clearly not liking what she was seeing. she never did look at the monitors today when bones, many bones were shown to the jurors on photographs. many of them having been that youd on and chewed on by animals according to testimony. the jurors did see the pair of shorts found with caylee's remains as well as the cute little t-shirt saying big trouble comes in small packages. the judge denied the mistrial. he said he could rule on that any time now until the verdict. >> bill: this jury heard the official cause of death. >> there has been through the autopsy never an official cause of death. what killed caylee anthony? it's homicide by unknown origin.
well, the medical examiner got on the stand today testifying how she came to that conclusion. it's a totality of everything that's a factor here. the fact that the child was unreported missing for a month. the fact that it was stuffed into a bag. the fact there was duct tape around the skull and body. and the fact it was stuffed out in the woods. this logic the defense finds to be absurd. >> there is no child that should have duct tape on its face when it dies. we seen that in cases of homicide. >> your determination is circumstantial evidence is that what causes you to conclude it must be homicide because you can't explain it any other way? >> i explained to you the red flags that we know in forensics on behavioral science. >> you need to answer my question. >> i don't understand. >> chief medical examiner also saying to the jury, testifying that because of the degree of
decomposition so great, all that was left, all she had were her bones, that was a contributing factor as to why you couldn't really pin down the cause of death. she also said she did test those bones for chloroform and xanax, but those results were negative which she blamed on the time. >> shepard: phil keating on the courthouse where this thing has become a real circus. emotions boiling over today as residents were fighting for seats at this trial. [shouting] >> shepard: pushing and shoving going on as folks lined up early this morning for one of the limited number of seats available to the public. some people accused others of cutting in line. and security officers say they had to force several folks to leave. because they wouldn't cooperate. >> well, thousands of sarah palin's emails from her days as governor in alaska are now public. state officials released boxes and boxes of them today. so what do they reveal? we are live in alaska next. plus, of the john edwards sex

in his campaign finance case. the prosecutors in that case say john edwards used almost a million dollars in campaign cash to cover up both his affair with rielle hunter and the existence of their baby. this was during the 2008 presidential race which john edwards' wife elizabeth was battling cancer. she died in december. john edwards eventually admitted that he was, indeed, the father of hunter's baby. the feds have to prove that he knew about the payments to convict him. stocks in the gutter today as investors worried over recent reports on the state of the global economy. dow jones industrial average fell to end sixth consecutive loss. that's the longest losing streak in 10 years. at the closing bell, the dow was off 172 to 11952. nasdaq off 41. s&p off 18. peter patterns have fox business live in d.c. it's been a while since we have had any really good economic news. >> that's right, shepard.
